Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's a place in this 1950s southern town where all are welcome, no matter what their skin color...and 'Tricia Ann knows exactly how to get there. To her, it's someplace special and she's bursting to go by herself.

When her grandmother sees that she's ready to take such a big step, 'Tricia Ann hurries to catch the bus heading downtown. But unlike the white passengers, she must sit in the back behind the Jim Crow sign and wonder why life's so unfair.

Still, for each hurtful sign seen and painful comment heard, there's a friend around the corner reminding 'Tricia Ann that she's not alone. And even her grandmother's words — You are somedbody, a human being — no better, no worse than anybody else in this world — echo in her head, lifting her spirits and pushing her forward.

Patricia C. McKissack's poignant story of growing up in the segregated South and Jerry Pinkney's rich, detailed watercolors lead readers to the doorway of freedom.

Synopsis:

Growing up in 1950s Nashville, Tennessee, Tricia Ann faces signs everywhere saying "For Whites Only." When her grandmother allows her to go "someplace special" for the first time, 'Tricia Ann heads for the public library--where "all" are welcome. Full color.
